Thanks for your patience during St Kilda Road tram track works

12 April, 2012

 

Yarra Trams would like to thank customers for their patience and understanding during the St Kilda Road tram track renewal works over the Easter Break.

With 1.3 kilometres of track and four kilometres of overhead wires replaced in only six days, the engineering challenge was immense.

The prospect of delivering approximately 90,000 passenger trips each weekday as well as the trips over the Easter long weekend via the bus replacement service added to the challenge.

With the support of our construction contractors - including key partners Fulton-Hogan and Coleman Rail - as well as the bus replacement provider, the works were delivered on time.

The St Kilda Road works are one part of our ongoing efforts in partnership with the State to build for the next 100 years of Melbourne trams.

In coming months, Yarra Trams will continue to renew tram tracks across Melbourne including in Elizabeth Street, Swanston Street, Wallen Road, Swan Street, Gertrude Street and Bridge Road.

New tram tracks deliver a smoother and quieter ride for customers and reduce wear on tram suspension systems.
